Working in pairs we were required to produce an interactive narrative for an artifact from the Victoria & Albert museums archive. (Focus on the archive of art and design & the computer art archive) I was paired with Yoogle Liu (a Computer scientist from China) & together we explored the V&A archive and carried out research to craft an interactive narrative for our chosen artefact.
Originating from programming backgrounds we looked at this project from a problem solving perspective and to do this we asked ourselves a few questions; what is the role of the museum? what is the role of the audience? do museums work? is interaction design really necessary? Does the current system need to change?In order to effectively answer this questions, we visited the London science museum to have a look at the way they incorporated interaction with the artefacts in the museum and indeed the use of interaction design is very useful as it enhances the audiences experience and gets the message across. However as interesting as the science museum was, we found some gaps in the way the current museum worked.

The Science Museum London with a huge error, maybe if they got some feedback they would have sorted this
After observing and carrying out some primary research, Yoogle & I decided that we were going to create a narrative that incorporated the following things/themes:
An installation that used a Ken Knowlton artefact to create an unforgettable (hopefully) experience. See below
